Beach condition advisory: This past winter, storms and high waves eroded much of the sand on the beach at this park, exposing cobble rocks, particularly south of the pier. The beach area with the most sand is next to the main day-use parking lot.


The beach is in the city of Ventura. The entrance is on San Pedro Street off Highway 101.
